UOC High School Mission Trip 2013

With the Blessing of the Council of Bishops, the Offices of Youth  & Young Adult Ministry and Christian Charity  of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA  announce its missionary trip for High School aged teenagers to The Treehouse in Wichita, KS .

             The High School  Mission Trip to Wichita will take place August 3 - 11,  2013. The Treehouse is an Orthodox non-profit that aids economically challenged moms and children with basic necessities and programs.  While at the Treehouse team members will participate in the following:

      *Work with the children who come to The Treehouse
      * Organize a picnic for the moms and children
      * Aid with physical improvements to The Treehouse facility


On-line registration is open now and this link may be used to begin the registration process.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/UOChsmissionapplication  


You may also go to the Youth Ministry section of the website at www.uocyouth.org/UOChighschoolmission.html for a link to the on-line application as well as to discover additional information concerning the trip.  Applicants must also have a completed Spiritual Father reference form, which is attached to this email.

 The cost is $550 which includes accommodations, meals, in-city travel, but does not  include transportation to Wichita.  All monies for the trip are the participant’s responsibility.  If accepted for the mission team, the participant will receive a packet with materials instructing them how they can raise the funds needed for the trip.  With the Grace of God, the fund raising is not as difficult as it may seem. GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE!  The Jr Ukrainian Orthodox League is generously providing grant monies to team members to help defray the cost of the trip.  Grant applications are also available on-line.


All applications MUST be postmarked by May 31, 2013.  There are only  five(5) places available on the team and applicants must be at least fifteen years of age.  To learn more about OCMC, visit their website at www.ocmc.org.


We pray that you will apply to participate in this ground-breaking trip to act upon the command of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to "Go Forth, make disciples of All Nations".


In Christ’s Love,
